Special Project Highlights

Cultural Menu Enhancement Project

Summer Snack Bags & Frozen Meals (2022)

During the summer of 2022, OSNP utilized a combination of COVID relief funds and donations to provide summer snack bags and fill the gap of student nutrition programs in the summer months. Bags were filled with fresh produce, milk, yogurt, cheese, and whole grain items.

Alongside these summer snack bags, OSNP partnered with GrowingChefs! Ontario to provide frozen nutritious meals for families. Snack bags and frozen meals were available for pickup on Tuesdays in July and August (9 weeks total), and reached a total of 55 families each week.

We hope to continue this program in the future and are looking for sponsors, reach out to Jody or Katherine if you have an interest!

GrowingChefs Fresh Produce Boxes (2022)

GrowingChefs! has partnered with OSNP London-Middlesex to support a number of families associated with White Oaks Public School. They grow and prepare fresh produce bags to be distributed monthly. GrowingChefs! has build and maintains a bountiful Hoop House/Green House at the GrowingChefs! Education Centre at the Western Fair grounds, allowing their produce to rejuvenate and be harvested once a month. 
As well, GrowingChefs! prepares 90 Frozen Meal kits to be distributed to both our Summer Snack Bag program, White Oaks families and VON Family Supports families.
